At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
this is my first appointment with Frank Becker. It was just the luck of the draw that put me in his care. I called for an appointment with a pulmonologist and lucky for me he was available. I found him experienced, thorough, caring and happy to provide me with the information I needed about my condition. He put my mind at ease.He did not get bored with my questions. He was very patient. I will see him again in a year unless something comes up before then.
Very impressed with Dr. Becker: Professionalism, friendliness, medical knowledge, willingness to explore necessary options to diagnose a complex problem. Engaged me in looking at and fully understanding past testing that had been done and future testing that will be required.
The doctor and his assistant (PA?) were both willing to actually listen, asked questions, and were able to rebut or clarify things when needed, rather than allowing anyone to dominate the conversation. This was a particularly big deal because a number of our encounters with previous specialists either resulted in being dictated to, or with them simply listening (or pretending to) everything and then leaving.
Frank Becker is an exceptional doc and human being. I am so very blessed and thankful to have him in charge of my case. Frank's wealth of knowledge and gentleness of spirit is just a small part of what makes him such an amazing asset to Northwestern.
I highly recommend Dr. Becker to anybody needing pulmonary care. He really spent time explaining problems with my dad's lungs. We actually came in for a second opinion and other than what I had found out online about Dr. Frank Becker, we didn't know anything else. My father and I were so impressed with him and his medical team. We walked out of that office feeling so good about making the appointment with Dr. Becker and getting to know him a little bit. I cancelled my dad's appointment with the other pulmonalogist we had originally sought and we will continue his treatment with Dr. Becker from now on.
Dr. Becker is always very professional and knowledgeable. I traveled 2-hours for this appointment and will continue to do so, as I value his experience as a pulmonologist. Today I also met his APN who was very nice.
